In some surprising TV news, Fox has renewed Fringe for a final fifth season of 13 episodes. The decision was made in part because Warner Bros agreed to lower its license fees to Fox along with an attempt to hit the magic 100 episode number that generally gives a show a longer shelf life in syndication. The reason suprised is the show just kept finding new record lows in ratings, now getting beat regularly by every other network show including Univision. This isn't to say the show has dropped in quality. If anything it is better then ever but for some reason it just can't find an audience. If you are not watching it, hit up Netflix and start catching up. Congrats to show Executive Producer JJ Abrams and the team.
